Glanamman (Welsh: Glanaman) is a Welsh mining town in the valley of the River Amman in Carmarthenshire. Glanamman has long been a stronghold of the Welsh language; village life is very largely conducted in Welsh. Like the neighbouring town of Garnant it experienced a coal-mining boom in the 19th and early 20th centuries, but the last big colliery closed in 1947 and coal has been extracted fitfully since then.
